Champagne Opiniatre Blanc Grand Cru Nature 2010 Mouzon Leroux
"L'Opiniatre" Blanc Grand Cru Nature 2010 is a fine vintage Champagne produced by Mouzon Leroux. Label of the company's most valuable, is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes coming exclusively from vineyards Grand Cru Verzy, and is a Champagne elegant and refined, which rests for 5 years on its own yeasts before dégorgement, after which it can express great richness, aromatic complexity and balance.
Fermentation takes place spontaneously with indigenous yeasts in oak barrels. The base wines mature for 6 months on the fine lees, after which the cuvée is created. Refermentation takes place in the bottle according to the principles of the Champenoise Method, and remains to mature on the lees in the bottle for a period of 60 months, giving the wine richness and aromatic complexity. The Champagne has a golden yellow colour with a fine and persistent perlage.
The intense and complex nose offers a bouquet of tropical fruit, flowers, citrus fruits, honey and notes of pastry, nuances of vanilla and toasted nuts. The taste is rich and balanced between creaminess and freshness, with a long persistence. An excellent expression of mature Chardonnay, a true champion.
